programs where people can go and get help. i think laws have changed. and i think they're being enforced. and i think that makes a difference. people would say to me, violence is just part of the human experience and human condition. and i said, no, it's not. we've changed the law, we've created these programs, we've put things in place. and it is working. i mean, we're standing with doctors and nurses and police officers and community activists across the country. >> belva: this is a global program, so, you have a global face. >> correct. we've been working for many, many years to not only let people know that violence against women and kids is a big problem in the united states, but it's a big problem around the world. and we had a chance during the beijing conference in 1995 to put the issue of violence in the platform of action. when secretary of state clinton gave her speech in beijing, she said, "women's rights are human rights. but if they are being beaten and abused, they're never going to actualize it." >> belva: the current campaign, where you are really trying to get to teenag
